1/2
package (17.3 ounce-size) frozen puff pastry (1 sheet), thawed
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
2
medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)
2
tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
cup milk
1/2
cup whipping (heavy) cream
1 1/2
cups cooked crabmeat, shrimp or lobster
1/2
cup Sauvignon Blanc, dry white wine or clam juice
2
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1
teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Unfold pastry sheet; place on lightly floured surface. Roll into 10-inch square. Cut in half; place one half on top of the other. Roll to seal edges. Cut crosswise into 4 equal pieces. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over low heat. Cook onions in butter, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly; remove from heat.
  3. Gradually stir in milk and whipping cream. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in remaining ingredients; heat through.
  4. Split each pastry horizontally with fork. Spoon crab mixture over bottom halves; top with remaining pastry halves. Garnish with additional parsley if desired.

Substitution
If you prefer, you can substitute imitation crabmeat for the real thing. Look for imitation crabmeat, which is sometimes called surimi, in the fish and seafood section at your grocery.
Simplify
Spoon the crab filling into baked individual frozen pastry shells, available in your supermarket's frozen food section.
